ANOTHER bus strike is being planned by drivers across East London next week in a row over pay in the run up to Christmas.
Tens of thousands of commuters are set to be affected by the 24-hour strike due to start at 3am next Wednesday.
The Unite union already staged a 24 hour and a 48 hour strike last month after the East London Bus Group imposed a pay freeze on drivers pay.
Talks between the union and bus company are due to take place at the weekend to try to prevent the strike.
